Celebrated Seattle restaurateur Callie James is more than a little thrown when her ex-husband, French investigative reporter Daniel Odile-Grand, shows up after fourteen years asking for her help. Even more disturbing: as she throws him out, Daniel is deliberately hit by a car, hurled through the front window of her restaurant—broken, bloody and unconscious. He flees from the hospital and breaks into Callie’s apartment, where he passes out. Reluctantly, Callie hides him. When she gets back to her restaurant, two assassins walk in, insisting that she find Daniel for them by tonight or pay the consequences.

Overwhelmed and hopelessly out of her depth, Callie hires the only man she knows who can help her: Cash Logan, her former bartender, a man she had arrested for smuggling ivory through her restaurant two years earlier, and who still hasn’t forgiven her.

The assassins blow up her restaurant. It’s Callie’s nightmare. And the worst is yet to come as she and her unlikely, incompatible ally discover that the most perilous dangers are far closer to home than they’d imagined.

This is a thrilling read that will keep you hooked from the very first page. From Callie’s French restaurant in the heart of Seattle, to its underbelly rife with terrorism, death, romance, guns, the novel is action-packed and paced to perfection. Beyond the action and the drama, the character development is solid, you’ll be rooting for Callie, Cash, and their love/hate relationship. Whether you’re looking to spice up quarantine life with a bit of action, or get lost in the pages of an engaging thriller, Danger in Plain Sight is the one for you. Get your hands on a signed, hardcover copy here!
